Has there been an OS upgrade on either the host or remote recently?
Indeed. The host at IBM was upgraded to V7R3M0.
The configurations looks like this:
Current/ live configuration at Avon:
AR01AS03 host V7R1M0
SA00AR01 receiver V7R1M0
Testing configuration at IBM:
ARxxxx04 host V7R3M0 clone of ARxxxS03
SAxxx01 receiver V7R1M0 clone of SAxxxx01
1. Option 46. Network Configuration from main menu
2. Select host entry with option 2
3. Change Target release parameter to lowest OS for host and all receivers
4. Verify all receivers for this host are at same lowest level
5. Can be changed back to *CURRENT when all systems are upgraded to same OS level

After following provided instructions, the distribution failed because the connection to the receiver was down, the connection was started and then it failed again for what was suggested to change all system's Target Release to V7R1M0 in Step #1 above and… it worked!
